A 3 years old boy, Mast. M. P. was brought to the clinic (PIN 10780) by his parents with the complaints of bronchitis. He was suffering from a frequent cough and colds, which would appear once or twice a month lasting for 12-15 days each time. His cough would be accompanied by high fever with chest congestion. There was no breathlessness, but he was put on the inhalers which relieved him.
His appetite was average with a marked aversion for milk. He preferred the cold weather, and there was a marked intolerance to the heat. His sleep was sound.
He was going to a playschool, and he was an active and cheerful child. His mother remarked that he was well-behaved and was extremely understanding for his age. He would not be cranky or stubborn usually and would never demand toys or other things to be brought.
While history taking, his mother added that she was suffering from Koch’s(tuberculosis) during pregnancy. She had completed the anti-Koch’s treatment(AKT). They had got an X-ray chest done for their son and it was normal.
Based on the above history, Dr. Shah prescribed the child research-based medicines for bronchitis.
Within 4 weeks of starting the medication, his cough had reduced by 70%. The medicines were continued further.
In the next 4 months of the treatment, the frequency and severity of his cough and cold had reduced remarkably. The mother reported that he did not suffer from any cold or a cough since the time the treatment was started. His appetite had started improving. His general health was better. Occasionally, there would be a mild runny nose. But, it used to get subsided in 2-3 days.
They continued with the treatment for 8 to 10 months for complete recovery. He did not suffer from a severe cough any time after starting with homeopathy and never had to take the inhalers or any other conventional medicine for it.
His parents were extremely happy for bringing back the smile in their child’s life and were grateful to Dr. Rajesh Shah.
This case highlights that homeopathy is extremely effective in treating bronchitis in kids and providing them a complete relief from its discomfort safely without any side-effects.
